Has anyone compared the original Quad mix of Captain & Me with the DVD-Audio 5.1 mix? I just ordered the Quadio from Rhino also! They will be happy with the pre-orders.
I talked about it a bit here and here (and on the 'Listening To Now' thread a few months ago). In short, I agree with @himey that both mixes are pretty good. My opinion swings back-and-forth: the new 5.1 is a bit better balanced at times (a couple of the songs on the quad push the drums into one speaker or leave one quadrant nearly empty), but I prefer some of the more aggressive mixing choices on the quad. I tend to opt for the 5.1 lately just because the sonics of the DVD-A are so much better than the old quad LPs/tapes, but that could definitely change now that we're getting a high quality transfer of the quad mix. I'm looking forward to more discussion on comparing the two once everyone's sets arrive
